Tree Removal Milwaukee

Most arborists and tree companies in Milwaukee would rather save trees than remove trees, but the fact is that trees are living organisms and at some point a tree will die and tree removal will be necessary. Most tree service companies are equipped with the proper equipment and professional arborists to safely remove trees and this is often the best time to find a local tree service. Depending on the size and location of the tree, tree removal can be quite dangerous and requires skills, equipment, and experience that most do-it-yourself homeowners don’t possess. If you have a large tree to remove hiring arborists to do the work is almost certainly your best option.

  • Does the tree service have liability and workman’s compensation insurance? Most insurance companies will temporarily list you on the tree company’s insurance policy if the tree service is going to be doing work for you.
  • If the tree removal is in a tight location or it is necessary to remove a large tree ask if the tree service has experience with trees of this size, or removing trees in restricted locations
  • Will the tree service provide a written proposal detailing what is included?
  • Will the tree service be hauling away the brush and the wood, or just cutting down the tree?
  • Is stump grinding included in the tree removal proposal?
  • Will the tree service contact local utility companies, cable companies, and phone companies to make sure there are no wires or gas lines if stump grinding is going to be done?
  • Will the cost for the tree removal be less if the tree company leaves the wood?
  • If the tree company leaves the wood how long will the pieces of wood be?
  • If the tree company grinds the stump will they leave the grindings or does the tree service haul them away?
  • Will heavy equipment need to be driven across lawn or landscape areas? Make sure to let the tree service know if there are underground obstacles such as irrigation systems, electric wires for landscape lighting, septic drain fields, etc.
  • Will the tree service repair any divots in the lawn or ruts in the lawn?
  • Can the tree service recommend a replacement tree or refer you to a landscape company to plant another tree to replace the tree that is being removed?
